Superficial and minor injuries that do not bleed too much can usually be treated on your own. In first aid or traveling kits you will often find everything you need for wound care.
ATTENTION: Do you still have sufficient tetanus protection?
Minor injuries can also be entry points for tetanus pathogens or spores. Therefore every injury of the skin should give reason to check the current tetanus vaccination status. If necessary, tetanus immunoprophylaxis must be carried out immediately (Robert Koch Institute Epidemiological Bulletin No. 34).
